fripodding and slinking – “slink (a hymn)” by locksley

The Good Guys

Perhaps you may have seen or heard about a little show called The Good Guys? I hope so. It’s a top rate show in my book. Dare I say it, it may even be considered appointment TV for me. It’s a cop comedy about two Dallas police officers looking to catch a break. Either a break in the case, a break from the boss, or even a break from each other. They typically get served the small cases that wouldn’t stir up much trouble, but the veteran cop has a nose for finding crime when at surface level, you wouldn’t necessarily find it. And you know how it goes when you look for trouble, sometimes it finds you first. This comedic take on the typical cop show is a breath of fresh air for me. Sure it can get down right ridiculous, but sometimes, that’s the kind of escapism we need in our entertainment. No?

It started this summer a couple months ago but I recently got word that it will be moving to Friday nights, which to me sounds bad but I’m hoping for the best. Why? Friday night death slot. Anyway, even thought it has been on Mondays, ratings haven’t been stellar. Which might explain it’s move to Friday. Plus, it started as a summer show, so it looks they’ll continue it in the fall.

But I didn’t come on here to tell you about all of that. Not today anyway. Today I wanted to discuss the show’s theme song. It’s a perfect fit to the mood of the show. Sadly, I can’t get any video of it to show you, but the least I can do is post a full version of the song. It’s also available for free download should you enjoy it as much as I do.

And how much did I enjoy it? Shucks! It’s my default ringtone! I don’t get too many calls, but I’ll be excited whenever I do… as long as whoever calls me doesn’t already have a tone assigned to them.

Anyway, as for the band Locksley, I’m still investigating them. I don’t know a lot about them, but I checked out a few of their other songs and they aren’t too bad. Definitely worth checking out.

But for now, this “Slink” will be a song blasted out of my car as I’m speeding down the road like my favorite cop duo. Because… well… that’s what this song makes me feel like doing. It’s just fun. And so is the show, so check it out on FOX and/or Hulu!
